WE ARE STILL FUCKING ICE! proclaims frozen black metal outfit Imperial Crystalline Entombment (heretofore referred to as ICE), opening their first album in two decades. Known for their especially frigid take on the already cold genre, ICE’s Ancient Glacial Resurgence shows this band hasn’t missed a beat in their absence. Citing spontaneous composition and subconscious inspiration, ICE’s second album is just as potent as their 2003 debut, the lauded and recently reissued Apocalyptic End in White. Using strong songwriting comprised of even more powerful riffwork, ICE’s return is marked with a strong sense of quality, fervor, and a special, icicle-encrusted sort of Blashyrkhian-esque might. ICE are fucking back, and they are still fucking ICE. Take an advance listen to “Of Blizzards and Banshees” ahead of Ancient Glacial Resurgence‘s release date below.
Ancient Glacial Resurgence releases September 1 via Debemur Morti Productions. Pre-order links below:
